this is kind of random but....

I really like to watch the commercials for the mods in the top right hand corner. They're mesmerizing  :o

Heheh, same here.  Maybe that's why our bandwidth is being gobbled up--not because people are actually downloading mods, but because they're refreshing the forum all the time looking at ads. ;)

It's embarrassing to be watching them and think, "hey, that's a pretty cool ad," then realize it's for a mod that sucks.

Yeah, I know how you feel and apologize profusely in my README, but at least Bons's Bruce voicing is one-of-a-kind!

Heh. Well, I wasn't thinking of a mod that anyone at PPG worked on...

Okay, please someone tell me HOW to get to view those banners?!  I have been thinking of having some banners made for my mod(s), but I have no idea what they look like.  Why is it that I cannot see them anywhere?  I realize that I am probably overlooking something incredibly simple, but, please, take pity!  ??? ???

Maybe you, like me, have configured your firewall to block adds.

I can right now only think of one reason that they are not displayed. Images are turned off for your browser (Well at least I have heard there are some who do it. Really old school.) I have  Firefox block ads and they display just fine.

I also haven't implemented the banner rotation in the alternate forum themes (probably will do so when SMF hits V1.0, I just didn't want to have to constantly re-tweak the things with each prerelease version) so if you're not using the stock layout, that would have something to do with it. Although they are always on the main page, pocketplane.net unless, as mentioned, you have something blocking it.

I think those ads in the corner are intrigiuing. Ive noticed that since my absence for about 5 months (i did make one post a few weeks ago i think) that there are like no new mods. wieeerd.

Thank you for the irony, Bryad.
